  1. This was my wifes greatgrandfathers.... can anyone tell me who made it? Are there different makers? Some better than others? Thanks Chris
  2. Hi Is there a book on the history and the knights of the order of St,. Henry? I am looking for an entry from the 1813 War, Frhr v. Lützerode. I would like to know why and on what date he received the award. I checked the Staatshandbuch for Sachsen but it only gives a year. David
  3. At first glance, appeared to be Gen d Kav Max von Laffert, but not even certain he's Saxon (??) http://home.comcast.net/~jcviser/aka/laffert.htm
  4. Dear All, on Wikipedia (known to be Not so accurate) it is reported that : British Brigadier General Alexander Augustus Frederick William Alfred George Cambridge (1874-1957) -Viscount Trematon in the county of Cambridge and Earl of Athlone- was awarded with the Kingdom of Saxony, Order of the Rue Crown (German: Hausorden der Rautenkrone) see : - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Order_of_the_Rue_Crown - http://www.ehrenzeichen-orden.de/deutsche-staaten/hausorden-der-rautenkrone-ordenskreuz-vergl-oek.html My 2 Questions : 1. Can anyone confirm or not this award to him ? 2. In any case, if not possible to establish this award with precision, can you say me if it was probably awarded or is it more certain that He never received it ? Many Thanks for any answer youll try to help me Best Regard Lilo
  5. Recent pick up.....grateful for some thoughts as to what should be on the bar (I figure all the medals are wrong).......and if its worth restoration
  6. Hi everybody, I have made some research and I have found only 6 names of saxon officers who received before the WW1, SE3 (Schwarzburg Ehrenkreuz 3 Kl.) General Paul von Criegern Major Albert von Funcke Oberstleutnant Georg Hoffmann General Kurt Hempel Major Johannes Larraß General Hermann von Schweinitz. To illustrate here is photo of Major von Funcke showing his medal on his medal bar
  7. Hi everybody, I was not there for a while but some nice ribbon bars are arrived at home. One of the most interresting is the following one. Indeed there is two ribbons of the St Henry order. - knight cross of St Henry - medal in silver of St Henry - knight cross 2nd class with X of Albert Order - iron cross 2nd class. After doing some research I have found only ten guys who received the same combo. But only one died during the war. Leutnant d. R. Wilhelm Hannes from RIR Nr. 102 (1888-1917) He received the SH3 on 29.08.1916 SHsM on 13.04.1916 SA3bX on 21.12.1916. Have a look. If someone has got photo of this officer don't hesitate to post it, thanks in advance. Christophe

  12. Hello readers: It has recently come to my attention that a short list of additional recipients of the Knighthood of the Saxon Military St.Henry Order appeared in the late 1980's. Here is the list of eleven additional recipients who do not appear in Oberst a.D. Georg Richter's reference book of 1937: - Max v.d.Pforte, for his merits on the first day of heavy fighting in the Flanders Battle, the 31.July 1917; - Friedrich Brucker, Lt.d.Res. in the Kgl.Saechs. Inf.Regt. 102. Incorporated into the Kaiserliche Schutztruppe fuer Deutsch Ost-Ostafrika (Imperial Protection Force for German East -Africa). Handed to the recipient on 5.Aug.1920; - Leopold v.Busse, Kgl.Saechs. Oblt. a.D. (as under Lt. Brucker. above). Handed to recipient on 18.June 1920; - Gottfried Gilbert, Oblt. u. Battr. Fuehrer 2.Feld.-Art. Rgt.32. Handed to recipient on 21.Apr.1920; - Albert Hahn, Lt.d.Res. Kdgl. Saechs. Infantry. Handed to recipient on 22.Dec. 1920; - Julius Heinemann, Hptm.d.Res. u. Fuehrer d. III.Batl. Kgl.Saechs. Ers.-Rgt.23. Handed to recipient on 27.Feb.1920; - Max Lessel, Lt.d.Res. ( as under v.Busse and Brucker above). Handed to recipient on 20.May 1920; - Friedrich Schnicke, Lt.d.Res. u. Fuehrer der 1. Komp. Kgl.Saechs. Inf.Rgt. 104. Date of award 1.Nov.1915; - Hans Schultze, Major u. Batl.Fuehrer III.Batl. Kgl.Saechs.Inf.Rgt.104. Handed to recipiemt on 1.Apr.1920; - Friedrich Singer, Lt.d.Res.,Kgl.Saechs. Feld -Art. Rgt.32. Handed to recipient on 21.Apr.1920; - Ernst Weiss, Lt.d.Res. Kgl.Saechs.Leib-Gren.Rgt.100 ( as under Brucker, v.Busse and Lessel ). Handed on 27.Jan. 1921; It is unknown to this writer why those officers not on active service in Afrika, did not have the awards listed at the time of bestowal or had the decoration handed after the end of the war. It seems self-explanatory for the officers then serving in Africa and who did not return to Germany until some time after the end of hostilities, not to have received their decorations. However General P. v. Lettow-Vorbeck, (commander of German Forces in then German East-Africa), General K.Wahle and his son , Oblt. a.D. R. Wahle serving under his orders, are listed in the reference book also with dates of actually receiving the decorations in the 1920's. Somewhat of a mystery. It now seems that a total of 2730 officers were awarded the Military Order of St.Henry. Bernhard H. Holst
  13. Hello readers: Having recently received the Honors List of recipients of the Saxon Gold Military St. Henry Medal ( Ehrenbuch der Inhaber der Saechs. Goldenen St.Heinrichs-Medaille) and further review of the reference book of the Kgl.Saechs. Milit. St.Heinrichs-Orden, 1736-1918 I came across the following recipient: Lt.d.R. Walter Kuehn (u-Umlaut), born in 1894 he entered military service Easter 1914 with the Saxon Inf.Reg. 104. He made a fairly fast advancement . Apparently distinguished himself as a Patrol- and Assault Troop leader on many occasions. In particular in May 1916 he raided a British mining operation during which several works were destroyed and prisoners taken. This also led to the identification of the opposite enemy unit as the 11./Royal Scots . Promotion to officers rank followed. Lt. W.Kuehn was the recipient of both Iron Crosses, the Saxon St.Henry Silver and Gold Medals and the Knights Cross thereof ( 24 Nov. 1916). The Knights Cross 2nd cl. with Swords of the Albrecht Order. War Merit Cross of Lippe. In addition the King of Saxony bestowed a Honor Diploma (Allerhoechste Anerkennung). Lt. Kuehn was severely wounded on October 15, 1918 and became a prisoner of British Forces. He died of his wounds on October 18. The King of Saxony saw this officer decorated with all three ribbons of the St Henry Order and remarked very favorably on this highly distinguished officer. Bernhard H. Holst
  14. Hi everybody, Here is a very nice photo of Rittmeister Artur Reißig (here on the photo he is still an Oberleutant - one pip on shoulderboard) showing his nice medal bar. The most interresting medal in this bar is the Schwarzburg Ehrenkreuz 3. Kl. Mit X. (SE3X). Indeed only 29 were awarded to Saxon officers during WW1 (12 from Sondershausen and 17 from Rudolstadt). It is possible that Reißig was born in Principality of Schwarzburg (just a supposition like I have not file in my hand). Reißig was born iin 1888, I have no date for his death. His promotion Fähnrich : 1st June 1910 Leutnant : 20 March 1911 Oberleutnant : 16 May 1915 Rittmeister : 17 May 1918 a. D. : 31 March 1920 He received the following medals SV3bX : 23 May 1917, SA3bX : 6 October 1915, EK2 : 27 September 1914, SMK : 8 October 1915 SE3X : 15 January 1915 ÖM3K : ? EK1 : between May 1918 and the end of the war. If someone has more informations about his officer, thanks for your help. Christophe
  15. Very rare pewter medal. Avers: Moritz und August Kurfürsten v. Sachsen 1555 Revers: Jubelfeier des Religionsfriedens zu Augsburg 1855
  16. Hi everybody, I’m proud to show you my new Saxon treasure. I have in my collection box for knight cross 1st class with X of Merit order of Saxe. Now the box is not empty. I have received this one yesterday. Only 422 crosses 1st class with X were awarded during WW1. Roth has found 416 names (400 crosses with X and 16 X to knight cross 1st class). I have found 6 more names. Enjoy with it. My cross is a pure textbook exemplar. don't hesitate to show yours. I'm particulary interrested to see hallmark if some exist on this cross. Thanks Christophe
  17. This morning I have just received this nice photo of General Karl Leimbach (1854-1921). It takes me a couple of hour to identify him positively. This photo has been taken between 1901 and 1904.
